Leisa and Julie's new venture has involved a sea change converting and old auto-shop in Hastings into the new Studio space. Although the environment has changed, the work and creative atmosphere has not, both Leisa and Julie are working on converting this new space into not only their personal studio but opening it up to the public through workshops and events. 








For over 25 years, Leisa worked from her studio in Merricks north, surrounded by bush land and nature, her work is clearly inspired by her environment. The Studio was built by family and friends out of mud brick and evolved over time to become a shared creative space for jewelers and painters alike. They held an annual market every year at The Studio for the public to marvel in the secluded and beautiful landscape. Leisa plans to continue on this tradition in coming years with a new location equally as magical and fitting for the creative people who surround and inspire her.
